Cheesy Zucchini Chorizo Breakfast Boats

If you haven’t noticed, I have an affection (obsession) for cheese. I have a drawer in my fridge dedicated to cheese. I buy little chunks of flavorful cheeses and use them frequently in my cooking. Some sweet soul at Arla (the maker of Dofino cheeses) noticed my affinity for cheese … and sent me several “samples” of Dofino cheeses. Ironically, these “samples” are the same size as the little chunks I normally buy at the store … and there are six different kinds … some of them I can’t even find at my local stores. I’m in cheese heaven! They did ask that I share my recipes that I make with their cheeses. Are you kidding? There’s no way you could shut me up!

On to the recipe: if you’ve never had a really good chorizo with eggs and potatoes, it’s a sublime experience. Those three ingredients together are simply magical. Add a little cheese and it’s heaven on a plate. My dad makes this wonderful chorizo (one of these days I’ll get the recipe for it!) and I found some in the freezer, so I cooked some chorizo with eggs, potatoes and cheese while my sis was here. I had about 3/4 cup of the cooked chorizo left after they left, so I decided to make it into a breakfast boat, using one of those gorgeous Italian zucchini that my sister brought me. It made such a beautiful boat I was tempted to add a mast with a little sail just for fun, but I didn’t want to mess up the perfection of the melty cheese …

Cheesy Zucchini Chorizo Breakfast Boats

This filling will stuff two medium (14-inch) zucchini if you cut the tops off lengthwise, or two halves if cut in half lengthwise and both halves are stuffed … or even more if your zucchini are small!

1. Overnight Croque Monsieur Casserole

Want the luxury of a savory breakfast casserole on a busy weekday morning? Good news: this Overnight Croque Monsieur Casserole can be prepared the night before, then baked in the oven the following morning. But be warned, this mouthwatering blend of flavors like onions, garlic, fresh thyme, and gruyere cheese may spoil you for every other brunch.

Tasty Egg Recipes

So without further delay, let’s jump into some delicious egg recipes. Here they are:

1. Bacon and Egg Breakfast Nachos

I’m a nacho kind of girl, but I also try to follow an inexpensive, high protein diet. This means that eggs are on my menu a lot, but traditional nachos are not.

So when I saw this recipe, I knew it was something I’d probably love and was worth sharing. You basically build a nacho plate that is topped with bacon, eggs, black beans, and lots of fresh veggies.

2. Sugar-Free Cured Egg Yolks

Do you make recipes that often call for egg whites but not the yolk? What do you do with all of those left over egg yolks?

Well, you no longer have to worry about wasting them. Instead, cure them in salt and then toss them over your salad or add as a garnish to your pasta and veggies.

3. Eggs in a Cloud with Cheddar and Chives

You need not say anything beyond cheddar and chives to get me to buy into this recipe. In case you need a little more info though, this is eggs that have been whipped until fluffy.

Then they place a yolk in the center. But you can add different flavor combinations to the eggs (such as cheddar and chives) to give yourself some variety.

4. Breakfast Bundt Cake

Do you love bundt cakes? I do too! They are so delicious and sweet, usually. This bundt cake is different though. It will expand your horizons of what you thought you knew about them.

Instead of a super sweet cake, it is rather savory. It has biscuits, eggs, bacon, onions, and some salt and pepper. Now you don’t have to feel guilty about eating cake for breakfast.

5. Egg-in-a-Hole Burger

I am a burger fanatic. I love them! Truthfully, burgers are probably my favorite meal. I don’t even want them to be super fancy. A simple, fried burger with no bun is a-okay by me.

But when I saw this burger that had an egg in the middle of it, it just looked delicious. So if you love eggs and burgers, then you’ll definitely want to give this one a try.

6. Flamenco Eggs

If you’ve done much traveling you may be familiar with Flamenco eggs. It is a recipe that originated in Spain.

But if you aren’t as familiar, they are basically baked eggs with chorizo, serrano ham, and tomatoes that all come together in one dish.

7. Creamed Spinach with Baked Eggs

Spinach is something we should all try to fit into our diets if at all possible because of all of the awesome vitamins and nutrients it contains.

But if you don’t like spinach this can be hard. Hopefully, this recipe will make it a little easier. It is creamed spinach with some baked eggs placed on top. It looks so delicious!

8. 6-Ingredient Tuna Salad Stuffed Eggs

If you are a fan of tuna salad, then you’re definitely going to pay attention to this recipe. It is a simple recipe for tuna salad that contains only 6 main ingredients.

Then to up the protein, they stuff boiled eggs with the tuna salad. It gives a little different twist to what we traditionally know as deviled eggs.

9. Jack and Green Chile Egg Puff

This egg puff looks so amazing. It is something similar to an egg frittata, but yet it is said to have a much lighter texture.

However, it requires only a few basic ingredients and looks very easy to whip together. So the next time you want something a little different, give this recipe a try.

10. World’s Greatest Pickled Eggs

My husband is a pickled egg fanatic. When we moved to our new home, the neighbors brought some over, and they’ve been the best of buds ever since.

So needless to say, I make pickled eggs pretty often. It is always refreshing to find a new, simple recipe to help with the task. If you enjoy pickled eggs, then you’ll want to give this recipe a glance.

11. Cheesy Baked Scrambled Eggs

I’m having a super transparent moment here, but I really don’t like to cook all that much. I have to cook because I have a larger family.

But as far as standing in the kitchen for hours on end, no thanks. That’s one of the reasons I can so much each summer so I won’t have to. So when I find recipes like this one that allows me to throw some eggs in the oven and walk away for a few, I’m all in.

12. Bunless Bacon, Egg, and Cheese

Are you a low-carber but miss your traditional food sometimes? Yes, I totally understand that. One of my favorite breakfast foods is a bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit.

Well, this recipe helps you to recreate it without the bun. They do an avocado twist to the mix, but you can have your bacon, egg, and cheese and still skip the carbs.

13. Fluffy Eggs

This recipe looks ridiculously delicious. You basically create whipped egg whites. They are placed on your choice of sliced bread.

Then you place grated cheese on top of them and bake. This would be a great meal for really any time of the day.

14. Baked Eggs in Sweet Potato Boats

The name for this recipe pretty well explains what is going on here. You hollow out a few sweet potatoes until their centers are gone.

Then you place eggs inside of them and bake. That is how you get your baked eggs inside boats. It looks really delicious and kind of fun too.

15. Scotch Eggs

At first, I thought this was kind of a weird recipe for eggs. But after I dug a little deeper and saw the process, I quickly became impressed and thought how delicious they looked.

So you wrap your hard boiled eggs in beef. Then you wrap the beef in bread crumbs. Then you cook the beef, slice it to where you can see the eggs, and top with a delicious mustard sauce.

16. Omelet Waffles

Do you have a hard time making the perfect omelet? They are hard to flip, aren’t they? You don’t have to worry about that any more, thanks to this recipe.

So you’ll just mix up your omelet ingredients, then toss them in the waffle iron until fully cooked. It is an interesting twist on a traditional omelet.

17. Potato Salad with Bacon and Egg

As soon as I saw this recipe I knew I had to share it because I instantly knew it would be something that my oldest would love.

So if you too like potato salad, eggs, and bacon, then you’ll definitely want to check out this recipe.

18. The Perfect French Omelet

I’m a complete omelet person. I love them! It is amazing how you can take a protein (eggs) and stuff them with lots of other delicious items to make a filling breakfast.

But making a typical French omelet isn’t always easy. This recipe shows you exactly how to make a delicious omelet.

19. Stuffed Meatloaf

This recipe is an amazing idea. Usually, we have meat loaf, then we add the peas and potatoes on the side.

Well, not anymore. You can make meat loaf and stuff it with veggies, eggs, and anything else you desire. You now have a one pot meal.

20. Poached Eggs

If you enjoy poached eggs, then you’ll be very interested in this recipe. It shows you how to make poached eggs in the oven.

Actually, this is my favorite way to make poached eggs because it is so easy. You just toss eggs in a muffin tin, then bake. Doesn’t get much simpler than that, in my opinion.

21. Biscuit Egg Casserole

This recipe looks oh so delicious and super simple to make too. You just line the bottom of your pan with biscuits.

Then place all of your yummy eggs, sausage, and cheese on top of the biscuits. You’ll then bake it to perfection.

22. Sausage, Egg, and Cream Cheese Casserole

This casserole looks like all you’d ever want for breakfast on one plate. It has cream cheese, sausage, eggs, and lots of cheese.

So you’ll just need to whip all of the ingredients together. Then layer it in a casserole dish. Top it with lots of cheese and bake. That is a convenient and delicious one pot meal.

23. Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Pizza

My kids saw this recipe, the word pizza, and immediately started begging for it. If you have kids that are a little on the picky side, you may be able to get some different food items into their bellies by turning it into a ‘pizza.’

So if this sounds good to you, then you’ll just need to top a pizza crust with bacon, egg, and cheese. Then bake until perfection.

24. Sausage Egg Boats

This is a unique way to serve breakfast but is totally easy too. You’ll cut your sourdough baguettes down the center and hollow them out.

Then you’ll mix your eggs and sausage together and fill the center of the baguettes. When that’s done, you’ll bake until perfection.

25. Sausage Egg and Cheese Tots

Do you like tater tots? I think a lot of us do. Well, this is a play on the traditional tater to only with an added breakfast twist.

So you’ll follow the directions to end up with a stuffed tot that has eggs and sausage in the middle. It is a great big breakfast in one little bite.

10 more ideas for stuffed potato skin fillings:

  1. Thai Sweet Potato Skins - a spicy sweet potato version with peanut butter, coconut milk and spices. It's accidentally vegan too!

  3. Egg and Bacon stuffed Potato Skins - a legitimate way to have jacket spuds for breakfast (with a slightly runny egg too)
  4. Philly Cheese steak Potato Skins - with ribeye steak and Gouda (I made a version for CenterCutCook a few years ago here)

  8. Cheesy Veg -stuffed Potato Skins with panko topping - boil up small chopped up pieces of carrot, broccoli and green beans for 5 minutes, then stir into the mashed potato with cheese, butter and cream. Top with panko breadcrumbs and bake for 10 minutes until the panko is golden.

  10. Creamy Garlic Mushroom Potato Skins - fry up sliced mushrooms in butter, add garlic, salt and pepper and cook for a further minute, then stir into the creamy mashed potato. Top with cheese and place back in the oven to melt for 5-10 minutes.

Cheesy chorizo and egg sweet potato boats recipe - Recipes

3 cups canola oil
16 jalapeños
6 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 3/4 cup Monterey Jack, shredded finely
1/4 teaspoon cumin powder
Pinch of kosher salt
Pinch of freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups panko bread crumbs

1. Make a slit down the middle of each jalapeño, being sure to keep the stem end intact, and slice off the end. Using a small spoon (I used an espresso spoon), scoop out the membrane and seeds.

2. In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese, Monterey Jack, cumin, salt and pepper.

3. Add canola oil to a medium pot (or cast iron skillet) and heat to 350F. Line a baking sheet with paper towels and set aside.

4. Meanwhile, stuff each jalapeño with a small spoonful of cheese mixture.

5. In batches, dip jalapeños in flour, egg, panko bread crumbs, and then dip once more in egg and panko bread crumbs. Transfer to hot oil and fry until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to paper towels to drain and serve immediately.


Big things happened this past week. As I mentioned a few days ago, Goce and I celebrated 7 years of marriage – lucky man – and our oldest celebrated her 5th birthday!

If you were to see my house today, you’d think you got lost in Frozen-land. Today is her birthday party and I am Elsa’d out! AND, even though my daughter’s name is ANA, she wants nothing to do with “Frozen” Ana. It’s all about Elsa.

Obvi, the party is Frozen-themed, including an Elsa Cake that cost more than an arm, Oloff sugar cookies, and purple/blue/icy ice cream. Not sure I am ready to host a bunch of sugar-high 5-year olds, but the choice isn’t mine.

A few of my friends are also coming over – the plan is to hit-up the Cucumber Mojitos. How else do you get through a day filled with screaming kids?!

As you may have noticed, I have been keeping it real and pretty simple in the kitchen, lately. You know, trying to eat right, and all that. I’m also trying to stay far away from Lasagna Dip (I heart that stuff *thiiiiiis* much!) and Chocolate Mousse Cake. I figure, coat-season will be back soon, and before you know it, I’ll be stuffing this face with all kinds of chocolaty, ooey gooey amazingness.

However, due to the abundance of vegetables provided to me by my parent’s enormous vegetable garden, it’s that much easier to eat good and eat right.

Inspired by all the healthy-eatings, I decided to hook up with some zucchini and quinoa to make these zucchini fritters happen. Aaaand, because I can’t do a thing without cheese, or God forbid I leave out the garlic, I threw all of that together and made you these crazy delicious patties. Errr, fritters. Cakes??

The best part about this recipe is that you can make the quinoa mixture couple of days ahead, if you want to, and then fry ’em UP when you’re ready! You can have a couple cakes for a light lunch, or an entire batch for dinner… it’s up to you.

This is a quick and hearty summer lunch/dinner/snack/appetizer – enjoy it as you see fit. SO simple and delicious, it would be a shame not to give these fritters a try!

Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

Place a rack in the top half of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees . In a large saucepan, combine 2 cups water with the milk, garlic and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add the potatoes and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally to prevent the potatoes from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the potatoes are tender but still slightly firm, about 8 minutes.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and, using a slotted spoon, transfer half the potatoes to a buttered 9-by-13-inch baking dish arrange the potatoes in an even layer. Sprinkle with half the cheese and the cayenne season with salt and pepper to taste. Repeat with the remaining potatoes and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Pour the heavy cream evenly over the top. Bake the scalloped potatoes until golden and crisp on top, 40 to 45 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
